Struggling with shorebird ID. I have this guy as a willet, but just saw a post calling it a sandpiper. Any ideas?

life and living need not be so hard.”

Walking barefoot on the beach
Worn smooth by the sand”

I have begun a journal of sorts in Evernote to document what parks I go to and when and will be available in the field. This was so I can 1) document when I was there, what I did and 2) remind myself what I wanted to do the next time I got there. Perhaps after 6 months or so the journals can become posts of their own.
Next I am struggling with a new name for my blog, I want to rename it so I can obtain a URL of my own. PictureThis is taken, so I am reaching around and asking folks for suggestions. Would PictureThiz work? Hmm glad I wrote that – don’t like the way it sits on the page.
